Chris commented on Saving The Planet

I am interested but I am very confused. It said that a gentlemen built upon my Idea. Its the same concept, explained in a different way on. How this work, if selected would his team get credit for my idea? My next step to continue would be to get a sample of the grinned material sprayed with a fire retardant and introduce it to a customer. My original Idea is wonderful but to be able to get it rolling I would have to start out small considering that I am working by my self. I will work on finding a cheap solution for getting the Nike grinned up materials sprayed with a fire retardant solution. Then I would have the material bagged up and present it to companies like Home Depot as a blower insulation alternative. This would be the easiest way for this to be implemented. I originally misunderstood and thought Nike was going to be apart of the process. With that being said all I would have to do is make a few calls. First finding a fire retardant solution to spray the materials with and call distributors to sell the product. I could personal go to Home Depot and present the product if I had some of the materials on hand. Once the revenue starts flowing we could research the compressed wood. I have done some research on the wood and found a carbon fiber solution that should work combined with the materials. I will just need to find a manufacture to mass produce it. With 30K I could get my sell guy on the road and we could potential have the insulation in stores first. Questions, is Nike going to be charging for the materials once the winner is selected? Is the materials truly grinned up or is it simply scraps.
